Mountain Views



Mountain Crossing...
On top of the world
An unending future
A promise unfurled.

Mountain Crossing...
A ladder of clouds
A dream for the taking
Erase all the shrouds.

Mountain Crossing...
Catch that which you seek
Anointed, appointed
You've now reached the peak.

Mountain Crossing. Available for purchase in my Etsy shop until listing expires on November 3.

Beautifully written poem for a texturally wonderful piece. I should know, I have two from the series and love them! It has a gentle beautiful calm presence- yet love the juxtaposed words carrying such a strong uplifting message!

"erase all the shrouds"
that's beautiful...

seems a lovely tone of silver grey and the possibility of a new kind of "red cross" in the sense of self natural healing...

I have never climbed a mountain in reality...but getting through life's upheavals and trials ...your words flow much like the small cool crystal tributaries that flow down the mountains as if to say you can make it in your journey...one step at a time. Did you make the handmade papers? The textures are very inviting and yet evidence of a mountain's narrative. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
p.s. I am including a check for you ...I had bought a used book right before so I do not understand what I did wrong...

The textures in this piece make me want to touch it. The words bring the visual to life.

I have crossed mountains, some of which were bathed in blue hues. I really have to get my French friends to start visiting blogs... Yours in particular!

Seth, I love your "Mountain Crossing"... especially the words, "catch that which you seek" I love that this is a message to all of us... in our art and in our life. And your new collage/painting in such majestic blues. Hope your weekend is filled with wonder... Roxanne

Beautiful textural piece and I love your words. A great message delivered by the two.
We have a hill on our farm that I used to walk up with my boys when they were little for picnics. They would always say they were "at the top of the world" up there...your poem makes me think of them and the directions they have taken.
